Intel seems to be in no hurry to transition its Atom processors to the 22nm Tri-Gate manufacturing technology, which the company has announced just recently, as sources familiar with the company's plans have mentioned that Intel's first such design will be released only in 2013.

The new Atom micro-architecture is called Silvermont and will feature a system-on-a-chip design, which means that it will integrate all the chipset and graphics logic on the same silicon die, in order to reduce power consumption.

All the chips used in toady's smartphones and tablets are SoCs and Intel's recently released Z760 processor has also went this route.

Other details are rather scarce at this time, but Intel plans to built the chip using the 22nm production node, which means that it will also use the company's Tri-Gate more
